check disc at start-up

Have been running XP Pro with no problems but after installing an ADSL connection, the PC runs very slowly (10 minutes to boot up and shows a white bar on a black background before Windows loading screen appears) and check disc sarts on loading Windows. Any explainations on what's going on and how to restore the performance?

a white progress bar on black background sounds to me like hibernation has been enabled maybe.

check start/control panel/performance and maintenance/power options/hibernate and untick it.

if xp does not shut down correctly chkdsk will run at every start here click here click here may help a bit
